The data ensures that Mercadona is being the distributor most affected by the pandemic and the growth of online commerce. However, Juan Roig’s chain does not seem willing to maintain this trend for much longer and continues to innovate in the services it offers its users.

Regarding the washing instructions from Mercadona, they point out that the ideal is to submerge the mask in a 1:50 bleach dilution with warm water (20 ml of bleach per liter of water) for 30 minutes. Afterwards, it should be washed with soap and water and rinsed well to remove any traces of bleach, leaving it to dry for two hours. And forget about using inadvisable shortcuts such as the microwave, dryers, heaters…
You also have to be very attentive to the process of removing the mask , one of the moments when it is most exposed to contamination. The first thing we should do is take off the protective gloves we are wearing, then wash our hands with soap and water or apply hydroalcoholic gel and finally remove the mask without touching the front part and holding the rubber bands.
